Unless you are a true high school basketball fan, you probably don’t remember Virgil Sweet.  He was the basketball coach at Valparaiso High School in the 1960’s.  He is best known for the way his teams shot their free throws.  They all shot exactly the same way, and they all hit them. On February...

Reds’ Demise

May 25, 2016
By

When I wrote this article, the Reds were in an extended losing streak.  Who is responsible?  The first person who usually gets blamed is the manager, which in the Reds case is Bryan Price.  Although Price has proven not to be a winner in his stay with the Reds, he certainly is not the...

In 1965 a relatively unknown high school sprinter from Brebeuf High School in Indianapolis set the state 100-yard dash record.  He ran it that day in 9.5 seconds which astounded everyone at the state meet including his coach.  Since we no longer run races in yards, it still stands as a state record.  That...

When the Indianapolis Indians opened their baseball season this spring, it was the 20th year for the new downtown Victory Field.  Victory Field has the reputation of being one of the most fan-friendly ball parks in minor league baseball.  A lot of people enjoy sitting beyond the outfield wall on the grass with their...

While reading Sports Illustrated, I saw a blurb stating that Dale Earnhardt, Jr., is going to donate his brain to medical research when he passes away.  He wants it to be used for the study of the effects of brain concussions on human health.  Most of you probably remember that Dale’s dad passed away...

How Technical Are Sports Going To Get?

May 16, 2016
By

While listening to a baseball game the other night, I could not believe the statistics they were quoting.  Most teams now have charts, graphs, and statistics on every ball a major league player hits.  They know how hard it was hit.  They know which direction it went.  They know how many times a player...

The other night I was watching a commercial on TV.  A young girl dressed in her softball uniform was just walking on to the ball diamond.  Oh, how this brings back memories for any of us who ever played the sport of baseball or softball.  I know young boys usually envision that they are...
